Diarrhea Medicine That Is Safe For Patients With Liver Cirrhosis?
Afternoon, I want a consultation .. My father is experiencing diarrhea at this time but he is a patient of Cirrhosis of the liver so he should not take drugs carelessly. Then what steps should I take to treat my father? is it given ORS? or how?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically ORS only contains fluid added with electrolytes which aims to replace fluids and electrolytes that come out when someone has diarrhea or vomiting. When a person experiences vomiting and diarrhea (especially if frequent and frequent), what comes out of the body is not only fluid but also electrolytes. Replacing fluids with only water will only replace fluids that are lost, so there can be an imbalance of electrolytes in the body. Electrolyte fluid will not interfere with liver function further or burden liver function, so it may be given to people with liver cirrhosis. Make sure you follow the packaging rules before giving it to your father.
Besides ORS, your father can also consume other liquids such as fruit juice, coconut water, soup broth, or other household liquids. If indeed diarrhea does not improve within 3-5 days, you should consult your father to the doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
